On Stockhead today, the CSIRO just flagged AI as a $315bn industry and we bring you up to speed with who’s doing what in the space, these industry commentators reckon Aussie oil and gas players should be taxed more and this week’s Wildcatter podcast taps into Triangle Energy and the Perth Basin.

But first…

The day ahead

Key events on the local calendar will be led by the release of minutes from the RBA’s November board meeting (11:30am eastern time).

The meeting took place before last week’s disappointing jobs numbers, but markets will still assess the minutes for clues about the central bank’s rates outlook.

The following companies are scheduled to come out of a trading halt or voluntary suspension over the next 48 hours:

Tuesday:
Highfield Resources (ASX:HFR) – quarterly clarification
Dampier Gold (ASX:DAU) – farm in joint venture status
Nzuri Copper (ASX:NZC) – acquisition

Wednesday:
PayGroup (ASX:PYG) – capital raising
Dotz Nano (ASX:DTZ) – capital raising
MetalsTech (ASX:MTC) – acquisition
Middle Island Resources (ASX:MDI) – capital raising
Meteoric Resources (ASX:MEI) – capital raising
Comet Resources (ASX:CRL) – capital raising
Millennium Minerals (ASX:MOY) – operations update
